Is this a sketch by Ellen Douglas, or is of her?
The Lady Ellen Douglas who attended the Dalmeny Park dinner with Princess (later Queen) Victoria was the daughter of the Earl of Morton.

Lady Ellen Susan Anne Douglas was born on 25 Sep 1824 and married in 1851, so would have been Lady Ellen Douglas in both 1832 and 1842, when she was present at the Queen's Ball, in the presence of Victoria and Albert, a wonderful pageant from times past. Ellen certainly moved in royal circles.

But she is unlikely to have been old enough to do a drawing of Princess Victoria when aged 8, I would think (Victoria would have been 13).

can anyone help identify the sitter and/or the artist?

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
